Last month, Earl Sweatshirt and The Alchemist dropped their album, VOIR DIRE exclusively through the listening platform, Gala Music. But the album is due to be released on all streaming platforms on October 6. Earl and Al recently released two singles off the project, “Sentry” featuring MIKE and “The Caliphate” featuring the talented Vince Staples.
Earl and Vince have been collaborating for years as we first heard the two collaborate on Earl’s debut mixtape in 2010. Since then, we have seen the two join forces on multiple tracks throughout the years, especially for Earl’s most popular albums such as, Doris and I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside. Vince has been a close friend to the memorable hip-hop group from California, Odd Future. We even got to hear on the track ‘Elimination Chamber’ from Domo Genesis and The Alchemist’s collaborative album No Idols, a feature from Earl and Vince.
"The Caliphate" makes me excited to hear what’s in store with Earl, Al, and Vince as well. Considering Earl and Vince have had a strong bond throughout the years, they both have the skill of bringing meaning and depth to rap. They were always consistent with their storytelling style since the beginning of their careers and you can tell just by their appealing sound, it has always been their passion to uniquely create music.
